It's a big week for Kelsea Ballerini, with a big-city media blitz leading up to Friday's release of her much-anticipated sophomore album Unapologetically.
Now it's a big week for her fans in Tampa Bay, too.
The Grammy-nominated singer will bring her spring tour to Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall on Feb. 16, with opening act Walker Hayes in tow. Tickets are $38.25, and they'll go on sale soon.
On the strength of huge hits Dibs, Peter Pan and Yeah Boy is poised to follow in the footsteps of fellow pop-country singers Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. She was nominated for Best New Artist at last year's Grammys, and is up for Female Vocalist of the Year at this year's CMA Awards, airing Nov. 8.
